September has arrived and is nearing time to put away our summer clothes in preparation for the chillier days and nights of Fall. The change of seasons from summer to fall is the ideal time to "Take Stock" for the Wintertime: assess how we have grown over the summer months, put aside what no longer serves us and begin to save some of our energy for the long winter months ahead.
Traditionally a fast or a retreat is appropriate during the change of seasons to help clean out the old to make room for the new. There are several resources for helping you to make this transition. This month's contributor, Bindu Johnson, works with the Institute on Integrative Nutrition and they have a simple post on the 12 steps to boost your nutrition. Other more formal cleanses, like the Master Cleanse, are a way to detoxify the body. A word of caution, this is not for the faint of heart, but the benefits from a cleansing fast are so wonderful for the body, mind and soul. Now would also be a good time to seek out the counseling of an experienced practitioner who can guide you through the cleansing process.
Don't Forget! September is Yoga Month! The ideal time to invigorate your practice. Twisting poses, forward bends, backbends and inversions can encourage the cleansing process. This month, we are honored to offer you a series of Anusara Classes taught by Jaye Martin and Betsey Downing. Betsey and Jaye teach a logically sequenced series of poses within each class, gradually advancing the poses across a series of 12 classes. Going through this progression daily with Jaye and Betsey would be a great way to get back to or reenergize your daily yoga practice.
